Whistleblower Report: Russian Interference

A senior Department of Homeland Security official alleges that he was told to stop providing intelligence analysis on the threat of Russian interference in the 2020 election, in part because it “made the President look bad,” an instruction he believed would jeopardize national security.

 

The official, Brian Murphy, who until recently was in charge of intelligence and analysis at DHS, said in a whistleblower complaint that on two occasions he was told to stand down on reporting about the Russian threat.

 

On July 8, Murphy said that acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told him that an “intelligence notification” regarding Russian disinformation efforts should be “held” because it was unflattering to Trump, who has long derided Russian interference as a “hoax” that was concocted by his opponents to delegitimize his victory in 2016.

Murphy also alleges that two months earlier, Wolf told him to stop producing intelligence assessments on Russia and shift the focus on election interference to China and Iran. He said Wolf told him “that these instructions specifically originated from White House National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien.”

Murphy objected and refused to comply.

   When will the Far Right climb out from under the rock in which they hide to learn that time has moved since their whine commenced.  

    From Reuters:  11 hours ago:   Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) recently alerted one of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s main election campaign advisory firms that it had been targeted by suspected Russian state-backed hackers, according to three people briefed on the matter.

     Apparently only the Far Right kids have not moved on, while everyone else has learned lessons from the past.   Like Donald - they appear to live in la-la land and stay within their bubble where nothing changes.

I have to admit that I feel rather sorry for those who continue to deny reality and the truth about tRump, his ties to Russia, and the overwhelming evidence and facts that show Russia's interference in our elections and the efforts they made in getting tRump elected as POTUS.

 

It borderlines worship for one to totally deny proven facts and reality in continuing with such adoration for any human being. Jim Jones followers were willing to drink the poison and this is what all of this reminds me of.

The country just went through four years of ‘Russiagate’ insanity as a result of Democrats and the media indulging that fantasy.

 

They’re doing it again.

 

Democrats wildly exaggerate the “Russia threat”.

 

Over and over, the pro-war members of Congress from both parties invoked the scary threat of Moscow and the Kremlin to justify another bloated military budget.

 

It’s one of the oldest tricks in the political playbook.

 

What’s amazing, and disheartening, is that so many otherwise intelligent people fall for it time after time.

Yes Gordy why would you NOT   believe   Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose government denied election meddling  ?     Believe Russia than our own republicans and democrats who validated the U S intelligence folks who live in the USA...have families in the USA and WHALLA----care about the USA.   
 Trump has a boy-crush on Putin and it appears he isn't alone.   


A bipartisan investigation by the Senate Intelligence Committee has validated the January 2017 U.S. intelligence assessment describing Russia interference in the 2016 presidential election —

Why would you believe James Clapper who has lied under oath to Congress?


One of the reasons I became suspect of the Russiagate narrative was because of the 'Intelligence Report'.


James Clapper, who headed the Russian Intelligence Report, and his team made sure they added a disclaimer -- just in case Russiagate blows up in their faces...


From 'Appendix B' of the actual government summary of The Intelligence Report:


"Judgements are not intended to imply that we have proof that shows something to be fact. Assessments are based on collected information, which is often incomplete or fragmentary, as well as logic, argumentation, and precedents."

Another reason I became suspicious of the Russiagate narratives was the claims that 17 agencies validated the Intelligence Report:


In comments at a California technology conference last Wednesday, Clinton also repeated one of her favorite falsehoods — that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies unanimously concluded that Russia hacked Democratic emails and ran a covert influence campaign against her.

 

In other words, Clinton’s beloved claim that all 17 intelligence agencies were in agreement on the Russian “hacking” charge — an assertion that the “fact-checking” group PolitiFact has certified as “true” and that has been repeated endlessly by the mainstream U.S. news media — is not true. It is false. Gee, you might even call it “fake news.”

Suggest you get anew intel report as Russia has interfered in our election in 2016, and is doing so now. Your haltered of  H. Clinton is showing. She is correct. Just last week we got the latest reports that Russia in at it again this year, and this week we find out Trump has ordered the Intel people to stop doing reports on Russia. Yes I would believe J Clapper over anything coming from Trump and his followers. The only fake new we get is from Trump and his followers, plus the die hard Bernie followers who Bernie has disowned.

Colin Powell claimed he was delivering "facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence"(sound familiar) as he told the UN that Iraq possessed biological weapons.


What’s amazing, and disheartening, is that so many otherwise intelligent people fell for it.


Polls showed that 68% of Americans believed Saddam had weapons of mass destruction.
We had politicians and the corporate media pushing the narrative.


Journalists like Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic was scaring the beejeebies out of otherwise intelligent people.

"If it’s an election year, there must be a Russiagate story."


There have been too many 'false' and unsubstantiated claims concerning Russiagate. 


The spectre of Russian interference has become a crutch for many liberal centrists. Easier to claim the nefarious hand of Putin is responsible for political events we do not like.

Are you actually claiming that all of our intelligence agencies are somehow tied to a giant conspiracy and are lying about Russia's interference in the 2016 election and the efforts they made to get tRump elected?  Really?

 

I am rather shocked, to be honest.

OMGosh, is this Russia LIE...EVER going to DIE!  I can't believe that anybody that has listened, read and done the research would keep this going.  HATE does terrible things to the continuing Trump bashers.

FACT: Russia interfered and continues to interfere in our elections. It is NOT a lie. It was been confirmed by all the intelligence agencies multiple times.  Since IMPOOPUS and his sycophants try to hide the reports from the American public, we may never know how many times until the dirtbag is out of office.

 

The only one denying the interference is IMPOOPUS simply because his supersized ego will not let him admit he had help to win 2016.

 

Please show the research you have done, read, and listened to that shows Russia is not interfering nor has it ever interfered in American elections.

 

BTW, your Beijing Joe meme stands out as a woefully misplaced anomaly given how IMPOOPUS praised Xi at the beginning of the pandemic on what a great job he was doing (just one glaring example), but it does fall in line with Wolf telling Murphy to shift the focus of interference to China.  Something you got from tRump's deny-&-deflect campaign or one of those troll accounts on FB?

You know Trump will step on anyone like a bug if they say anything about Putin, or  Russia.

 

Russia holds all his paper, and if he defaults, he's the next one to drink the tea.

Hardly.  You did read the article ~ or not ?  Looks as if something about Russia just fired another cannon aimed to land at rumpstud's feet.  Squarely.    It may be the final blast.  God Bless the Whistleblowers.

THIS, is a really, really loud whistle.  About time, better late than never?  OMG

 

https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/whistleblower-details-alleged-politicization-intelligence-dhs/story?...

 Over the course of 24 pages, Murphy describes an environment in which senior officials – including former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, current acting Secretary Chad Wolf, and current Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli – scrambled to gather and prepare intelligence reports that aligned with President Donald Trump’s political message and public remarks.

 

It is not that he is a documented liar, so much, as he is a documented DENIER of truth, other than his own.  Requires time, money, heartache to have to bend to his will, hide the truth under stacks of For Your Eyes Only missives to your boss, that he will accept.  Maybe even read? (never) - or is Ivanka his personal editor?  That would make sense, her being the favorite advisor and all.  And a Princess!  This all will come to an end.  

 

The Biden Administration will not disregard and deny the truth(s) of America.  Will not lie them away to the four winds.  For years and years.   He would not direct communications to him, from others, be edited to COMPLY - as he sees fit for YOU - TO CONSUME.  He would not pretend threats to the country are not real.

 

I think this whistle requires immediate attention on rumstead's head while there's  something about Russia is made known.  *54* days to Learn All About It ! ! !

Thanks Ms. Stretch for an interesting article. However, for those of us who do not live in the Trump Alternate Reality Bubble, nothing in this article is a surprise.

Honored Social Butterfly

It's not a surprise but it's awesome getting what is suspected confirmed and the pieces put together neatly for those who struggle with reality.

 

Thanks Ms. Stretch for the extra dose of Prevagen....
